On April 1st (I know- good day for it) my school transferred from one academy to another. This morning, I have received my first pay packet and it is over £100 less than what it should be.
I am so annoyed by this because now I am going to have to spend my day trying to sort it out and probably won’t get the money until next pay day – if I get it back at all! I am sure they will come up with some reason as to why I am short.
Today, I have achieved my life long ambition and bought a dog! He’s not ready to come home yet (he’s only one week and six days old), but he is so adorable!
He is a staffie, springer cross and I got to see both parents. All the dogs seemed to e well cared for and are around a lot of noise and other animals. We get to pick him up on May 25th. I am so excited!!
Generally tidy the downstairs hall, kitchen and bathroom
Tidy the living room, re-organising and decluttering
Re-group the children into their new places for after the holidays
Sort the GPS revision for after the holidays
Plan reading lessons for the next 5 weeks
Plan literacy lessons for the next few weeks
Assess the children’s writing against the teacher assessment framework
Transcribe some more of my grandfathers diary
Start planning Christmas
Organise craft supplies
Write more of my fan fiction
I am unsurprised that my ‘me’ column is less than completed, none the less, I am pleased with what I have accomplished in terms of my school and house because that will then make the next few weeks easier.
I plan on having a bit of a pamper tonight. A long soak in the bath, some face masks etc whilst I think about Christmas and then tomorrow, after popping out to see a litter of puppies (ekk!) I might have a go at organising my supplies and sorting my bullet journal.
I have come down to my parents as my dad is having a hip replacement operation on Friday and I wanted to be there to support both him and my mum. They came and collected me and took me home and I then went out to dinner with a good friend of mine whose pearl video’s I watch (pearls with breckon – check it out) and we then went bowling.
We have had a lovely day today. The three children went to mother-in-laws and hubby and I used a meal voucher that I had been given for my birthday. We went o Bella Italia and it was delicious. It was a bargain too, with the meal voucher costing much less than the total of the meal.
Today was also good because I received a £5 voucher for Hobby Craft – again a birthday gift from the Hobby Craft loyalty scheme. I got myself a watercolour paint pallet set and some brushes. I also picked up the gorilla glue to med my dog, although it looks a little complicated!
I have also come up with the plot to my latest fan-fiction. I can’t wait to get started!
